So then why do not the countries which supports Venezuela's sovereignty and recognise Maduro as the President , also put sections on America , all together ??? At least maybe that wil make America see that she is not making many friends this way

In simple words, US still is the boss of international financial system. The US dollar is still the global currency and all the trade that happens goes through the mechanism made and controlled by none other than the US. Doesn't matter how much you or i may hate this hegemony of the US, it's a reality.

With the actual US administration severe sanctions are likely to happen in near future which would concern many countries like Iran,China to mention a few.what good are sanctions if targets aren't met.

Great video! It's still relevant to today. Also, I came across your channel while learning more about economic consulting (that's the career I'm currently pursuing at the moment). Would love if you could do a video about it.

Aren't economic sanctions just a way of one country making another an offer they can't refuse? In 1953 we overthrew the democratic elected government of Iran resulting in the 1979 seizured of are embassy. And again in 1979 the Soviets invaded Afghanistan and the United States intervene resulting in 911. So now the Trump administration is intervening in Europe and Asia again.

Autarchic world - no trade (self sufficient) Not to be confused with anarchic world.

Excellent presentation! Simple and to the point.
Just in case you, or any of your viewers, are interested, I'd like to work on the idea/ concept of nations replacing the use of economic sanctions and embargoes, with economic incentives. I'm trying to find ways to test the idea. Perhaps someone knows how to create a computer game to test the idea among multiple users.
Also, I was thinking of using revenue neutral incentives as a way to off-set some the inefficiency problems
Again. Great video. Thanks.

Wow is this new? I wonder what other episodes I missed! Here's a Planet Money episode which also talks about how sanctions rarely work.

I've uploaded a handful of IR lectures in the last few months---on UN voting, war data, leaders, and now a full unit on sanctions.
